Gotta pull a little Anne of Green Gables once in a while with a title.
Anyway, this is a Vintage 50s Chrysanthemum floral dress that I bought (my second dress) from Traven7 (I’d buy more if the dresses were all much cheaper!)

Street fashion indeed!
Too bad you see my zit scars too well in this shot.
I look evil here. I don’t think I was prepared. Rob took these of me.
Talk about unprepared. Rob took this one of me holding hands and walking with Leto who was enjoying playing with a water balloon. Rob caught me talking, at least my mouth was closed.
I loveeeeeeeeee the glass buttons

  3. Beautiful (dress & wearer of course) :-)I think you got off lightly with your talking shot 😉 My Mom recently took a photo while I was mid sentence: Mouth open, lips curled up, eyes mid blink. She topped it off by stating (not jokingly I might add) that it was her favourite photo of me. I expect it'll be in a frame next time I see her..

  10. I've been following your blog for a while and I really love your style. But there's one thing that have always impressed me: the way that you arrange your slpendid hair. It's just fantastic, and make me think to the 30's hairstyle! If you could explain the way you do, I will be so gratefull :)Des bisous! Flora

  12. Gorgeous dress. I think my boyfriend/photographer gets a major kick out of catching me when I am off guard. I have many unprepared and talking photos every time I upload them.

  22. I really didn't notice any scars till you mentioned it and even then you have to look closely. You look gorgeous. :)The dress is beautiful too! I went to the shop and you're right, they are just a weensy bit out of my price range. Like, hundreds of dollars out of my price range. If they were about $20 each, then we could do something. Haha.Shallow Mallow, is it really weird that I tried to imitate the expression that you described? xD
